Ipswich sack manager Paul Cook


Ipswich Town have sacked their manager Paul Cook, following Saturday’s goalless draw with Barrow in the second round of the FA Cup.

Cook leaves Ipswich 11th in League One, seven points off the play-off places. Before Saturday’s draw against their League Two opposition, Ipswich had won only one in their last five league matches.

Ipswich chief executive, Mark Ashton, said: “Firstly, we would like to thank Paul and his team for their efforts in what has been a difficult transition period for everyone.

“I know how much Paul wanted to succeed at this club. However, following discussions with the board, we have decided a change is needed for our long-term interests.

“At this moment, there is no one lined up to replace Paul. There will be an extensive search to find the best replacement for the club.

“I will communicate more to the media and our supporters on Monday.”

Ipswich’s next game is away against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night, followed by a trip to Wigan Athletic and a home fixture against Sunderland.
